This paper looks at the points of view in the three stories and analyzes who is telling the story and how and why the author chose that particular point of view. These three pieces all show how point of view can affect a story and what a difference it can make in how the reader sees the characters and the action.

From the Paper:

"It is clear this Narrator is attempting to share her experiences just as they happened, and this use of the first person makes the reader feel as if they are right there as the events take place. "We watched the boats drop their sails one by one in the cove as we drove along the high land. The old Bowden house stood, low-storied and broad-roofed, in its green fields as if it were a motherly brown hen waiting for the flock that came straying toward it from every direction" (Jewett 159). This is the simplest of the three points of view, because this Narrator is the simplest character of the three. Her thoughts and feelings are open, and so is the point of view, and the reader feels they know her, and her friends, by the end of the story."
